Paper Plane

Category: AviationTeknovis @ 8:13 am

Luca Iaconi-Stewart is building a paper plane – but not any paper plane! He is building a pretty excellent model of a Boeing 777!

Read about it in Coolest paper airplane ever and the plane nut who built it (Q&A), and look at the photos in his photo sets!

The 6th National Data Protection Conference is taking place in Dublin next week. I do not know if there are still places available!

It looks interesting, but it is not really my area.

Smart Contact Lenses

Category: HardwareTeknovis @ 6:02 pm

There was a lot of news coverage of Google‘s announcement regarding smart contact lenses last week! The original Google blog post is Introducing our smart contact lens project, and some of the many reporting articles are Google Unveils Smart Contact Lens That Lets Diabetics Measure Their Glucose Levels, Google unveils ‘smart contact lens’ to measure glucose levels, and Google developing smart contact lens.

It is exciting technology, and it really makes me wonder what else the future has in store for contact lenses! My personal choice – the ability to change the focal length dynamically in order to “zoom in” on objects of interest :)
